Labourites judging the rest by themselves
Another scandal is ready to burst out among Mikhail Saakashvili’s opponents. Representatives of the opposition hardly had time to recover from the split of the Group of Eight and the failure of the related negotiations on reforming the electoral environment when there started looming the possibility of another scandal. The republic’s Labor Party accused representatives of the Georgian expatriate communities in Russia of encouraging Saakashvili’s ruling regime and attempts to discriminate anyone fighting the authorities domestically.
Tbilisi to turn into China Town
When you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you,. Enough of Saakashvili’s dreams about East – Hong Kong and Singapore: the Chinese start to get interested in Georgian real estate. It looks like citizens of the Celestial Empire are coming to help naïve Mishiko. Quite probably, in one or two years’ time the second official language in Sakartvelo will be…Chinese that schoolchildren will have to learn instead of English.
Caucasus splits up from inside
A rather representative conference entitled “Problems of Caucasus Studies” is taking place in Vladikavkaz attended by experts from South and North Caucasus as well as politologists and scholars from Moscow. Today the undisputed hit of the program is Alexander Iscanderyan’s report on monoethnization of Caucasus.
Onishchenko delivered a battle against the georgian piggery
The most menacing weapon used by the Northern neighbour against Sakartvelo is vigilant Gennady Onishchenko. It was him to close the road to the Russian market for Georgian wine and the "Borjomi" mineral water, depriving Tbilisi of a serious economic support. And now the main sanitary inspector of Russia states that the African swine fever that spread over the Russian territory had come from Georgia. However, in Onishchenko’s opinion, this does not look like a biological warfare. Just a small filthy trick and nothing else.
Mishiko savors a handout from UN

The document was supported by 57 national delegations, voteв down by 13 the most curious thing is that 74 countries abstained. Though Georgian diplomats consider support for the politicized document as a small victory, their Russian colleagues believe that consideration of such resolutions is Tbilisi’s explicit propaganda.

Georgia bricked up window to Europe
Some Georgian nongovernmental organizations blame the authorities for discrediting the process of Eurointegration. The European Union turns its eye on the dying “beacon of democracy” quite unwillingly. Currently the association is concerned with more vital issues and Tbilisi’s striving for taking revenge upon Moscow for the economic and political blockade causes nothing but indigestion in Brussels. The leadership of Sakartvelo frittered away even the creation of a free trade zone with the EU, having called in question its efficiency for the Caucasian republic. Will the European gate be really slammed soon right in the face of Mikhail Saakashvili and his supporters?
